Creating an effective IDP

An IDP is an employee development tool that identifies activities that will help you enhance your knowledge, skills, and abilities. The IDP process provides an opportunity for you to share, with your supervisor, your goals and to communicate your strengths and developmental needs. You work together to develop realistic goals and activities to achieve them, and your supervisor assists you by providing feedback and suggestions.

Completing an IDP should be a joint effort between your supervisor and you. The organization's needs, technology changes, expected turnover, program plans, etc., should be considered while developing and IDP. It should not be a "wish list," but a realistic working document.

View the following information to help create the most effective IDP.
